ShottyTheBeam – THE SUN ALWAYS SHINES…sometimes [Interview]

Describe your sound in 3 words

androgynous, independent and pretty

Tell us a few things about your new album.

This new album is a deep dive into my head. Sonically and lyrically you can see that. It’s personal at times, then it’s poppy and catchy at others and I think that speaks volumes on who I am as a person. I also see as art as a time capsule, it has the power to capture a time in someone’s life and that is so cool to me, for example this project captures my summer of 2021.

Which song of the album reflects you the most?

I think my song “INCONSISTENT” represents me the most. Making decisions are hard and I am the worst at making them as well. It always seems like my opinions and desirables are changing and that can be a frustrating thing, so that’s why I think I resonate with it the most.

Artists and people who have influenced and inspired you?

I am heavily inspired by people like Kanye West, Tyler the Creator and Mac Miller when it comes to the way they go about making music. For the actual music I like to be inspired by old music, like 70s Pakistani music, 90’s R&B, and people like Billy Paul and Al Green.

What would you change in the music industry?

I would change the Grammy’s. Just make them legit, they need to be rewarding the people that deserve it the most.

Favorite music related film?

My favorite music related film is La La Land, the colors and music in that movie are so pretty and pleasing to my ears and eyes I love it. Also the story of sacrifice and achieving what you want, are my favorite type of stories so it is a no brainer for me.

What would you be doing right now, if it wasn’t for your music career?

Most likely something with Film/ Cinema, I love stories and filmmaking just as much as I love music and I’m good at it too. I make all my own music videos with my friend Yolanda Darkins and they are hella tight.

Believe in Gravity baby!

Thank you!
